Scott Noethlich has taken over the City of Sebring's day-to-day operations as city administrator.


Noethlich learning as he goes

New Sebring City Administrator has "adjusted pretty well" to new duties


By MATT MURPHY
"---.--maft:ttn2rphy@Sl'ssfn ncomr
SEBRING In 2002 Scott
Noethlich moved from Utah to take a
job as information technology adminis-
trator with the City of Sebring. In the
ensuing six years, Noethlich. 43,
worked his way from IT administrator
to assistant city administrator. And on
July 1, his career arc reached its apes
when he took on the head role of city
administrator.

A unique transition
Noethlich's move from Utah to
Florida was long but, given his Florida
connections, not completely unexpect-
ed. He had lived in Tampa for almost a
decade, his-parents lived in the state,
and it just so happens that his sister
lived there too.
In fact, she lived in Sebring, married
to former City Council member Jeff
Carlson, and it was Carlson who alert-
ed Noethlich to the city's IT adminis-


'This is not a job you
learn or adjust to
overnight.'

trator job opening
Noethlich worked in that position for
four years, and his responsibilities
included maintaining the city's com-
puter systems and networking equip-
ment and working to install a new
wireless communications system that
was shared by the city and county's
Emergency Operations Center.
In 2006. four years after he started,
with the cat., Noethlich was offered the
newl. created position of Assistant
City Administrator. with the idea that
he would be groomed to replace Bob
Hoffman once he retired as City
Administrator.


"'When I arrived at that position.
there % as sonime'.,hat of an intent to
mo\e into the administrator position if
I proved m i elf." Noethlich said. He
quickly\ did. and on Ma\ 7 the city
council official\ decided to offer him
the administrator 's job
The mo\e from serving the city's
staff as IT administrator to serving the
city's citizens as assistant administrator
was a unique transition, to say the
least.
"It was an interesting transition from
serving all (the city's)'departments to
an administrative position where
you're tasked with administration of
those departments," Noethlich said. "It
presents its own challenges, to get the
respect of employees in that capacity."
In his new position, Noethlich got
hands-on experience working with
Hoffman, attending meetings, putting
together the agenda packets for the

SFCC takes over scholarship fund

it was time

SEBRING To bring in
more money and ensure the
integrity of the funds raised,
South Florida Community
College's Foundation has taken
control of the Sebring Chamber
of Commerce's Scholarship pro-
gram account.
SFCC President Norm
Stephens said it was partly due
to the recent problems at the
chamber.
"With all the chamber has
gone through this year, we
thought it was time to make that
move," Stephens said.
Stephens has been on the
Chamber board for the past five
years and served as president of


the board for 18 months during
2006 and 2007.
The idea was discussed as
early as 2005, but no action was
taken.
Both Sarah Pallone, interim
director of the Chamber, and
key scholarship sponsor Alan
Jay Wildstein said they were
unfamiliar with the idea until
recently.
"Sarah (Pallone) was not
involved and my conversation
was with, at that time, Dan
Andrews," Stephens said about
the idea of moving the account
to the Foundation in 2005. "It
was up to Dan to implement it
and he didn't implement it and I

SEBRING Based on straw ballots
collected after the Highlands County
Voters League candidate forum
Thursday night, none of the incum-

won subsequent terms.
About 65 people attended the forum,
held during the League's monthly
meeting at Homer's restaurant in
Sebring.
Not all of them voted.
There were some under votes, in
which participants cast a ballot in one
race but not another.
Some attendees didn't vote at all.

Members of the Desoto Volunteer Fire Department and the Highlands County Emergency
Services, were among the responders to a two car collision that occurred Friday afternoon.
Here they work at extracting Harland Hoeft, of Sebring, out of his car. He became trapped
when he came to a complete stop in the middle of northbound U.S. 27. Amazingly, no one
was seriously hurt, although Hoeft and his wife, Lydia, were transported to hospitals.

Crash shuts down U.S. 27; 3 hurt


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING It wasn't
quite 1:30 p.m. on Friday, a
dry and sunny day, when a
1989 compact Oldsmobile,
heading west on Orange
Boulevard just north of the
Raceway gas station began to
cross U.S. 27 on its way to
turning onto southbound U.S.
27.
Instead, it came to a stop in
the middle of northbound
U.S. 27.
The driver, 92-year-old
Harland Hoeft of Sebring,
completely blocked the center
lane.
That meant northbound
driver, 22-year-old Katherine
Lind, also of Sebring, in a
compact 2002 four-door
Chevy, could not avoid crash-
ing into Hoeft's car, even


though she "applied the
brakes hard," according to a
Florida Highway Patrol
Report.
The collision had enough
force that.the cars merged and
locked, trapping Hoeft in his
vehicle. It took fire rescue to
untangle doors, grills and
twisted metal and plastic.
Aeromed was called in to
transport Hoeft to Tampa
General. His wife Lydia, 89,
was taken by ambulance to
Highlands Regional Medical
Center.
Both Harland and Lydia
Hoeft were discharged hours
later from their respective
emergency rooms without
being admitted into the hospi-
tals.
Two. lanes of northbound
U.S. 27 were blocked for

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

It seems the heavens have opened up since Mason's fatal plane
accident on June 20th. The rains have been frequent and heavy. So it
was one night that week as I sat on our front porch...Lightning filled
the sky, yet as I rocked, I felt a refreshing joy and peace washing over
me......I knew that Mason was with his Lord and Savior!
I have always known that Mason was a gift from God. He brought
'JOY JOY JOY from the moment of his birth and throughout his life.
And how he loved life! He made every precious minute count. He
went about his life doing good, loving others unconditionally, and
serving his Lord! He adored his family and reminded them constantly.
Even with his father, Edward Jr., and me he never left us without a
hug and a kiss. Impromptu phone calls and E-mails reminded us of his
devotion.
Mason G. Smoak will be deeply missed! We pray that you will
remember his beloved Tracee, Gabe, Landon and Ellie in your prayers
and continue to keep them in your hearts.
Please accept this letter as our sincere expression of gratitude to each
of you whom have ministered to us through your many acts of
kindness. You have honored Mason and uplifted us with your love.

With a song in our


Heartland Idol

Before saying another word here is the gist of
this editorial: The city of Sebring benefits from the
Heartland Idol.
Not only does the event attract people to the
Historic Circle on otherwise slow weeknights -
the audience has grown every year but it is fun
and entertaining in its own right, and has become a
classic, well worth community support.
This is why we were pleased the city council
finally voted unanimously Tuesday to allow the
new not-for-profit corporation, Heartland Idol Inc.,
to hold the competition downtown.
We also were glad to see Diana Walker appearing
before the council. Walker founded the Heartland
Idol and remains dedicated to its success.
We admire her persistence and understand her
passion.
On the other hand, we were somewhat taken
aback by the intensity, even animosity, that
emerged during a related discussion of insurance.
Newest council member Dan Andrews led the
charge, insisting on raising the issue before agree-
ing to allow the singing contest to take place on the
Circle.
Now we understand the importance of insurance,
especially in our sue-crazy world, but Walker had
made it clear from the start that even though she is
brand new at the business side of event production,
and has a lot to learn, she intends to get things
right.
She was never opposed to the idea of insurance,
she said. She had arrived at the meeting prepared to
adapt.
Andrews was unnecessarily confrontational to
the point of appearing opposed to the event, or even
hoping it would fail.
-This surprised us as Andrews was an enthusiastic;
supporter of Heartland Idol back when he was lead-
ing the chamber of commerce, and it was producing
the event.
We remind him our loyalty should be to the
event, and our commitment to see it happens safe-
ly, which is another way of saying approve the
event first, then find a way to insure it. And most
important, do it with a civil tongue in your head.

Dinner will benefit
Jean Claude Meus
Editor:
Jean Claude Meus and my
sister Rebecca will be head-
ing down to Sebring soon to
attend the Power of Faith
Dinner being held at Homer's
Restaurant on July 26 from
5-8 p.m. This is a fundraising
dinner to help offset the costs
of legal fees that will contin-
ue as long as the State
Attorney's office continues to
appeal the decision of Judge
McKibben.
Many people know that
Jean Claude is no longer in a
physical prison but he
remains in an emotional one
as this goes through the
appellate court once again.
Tickets for the event
remain available and the cost
is $20. Of course, this cost
includes the wonderful meal
you will have at Homer's.
Tickets are available at The
Print Shop in Sebring, 385-
5998; Trish's Restaurant in
Avon Park, 452-1030; Avon
TV in Avon Park, 453-3400;
Palmer's Grand Rental in
Avon Park, 453-0998; The
Card Shop in the Say A Lot
Plaza, through Patricia
Austin at 873-6969 and
myself. I can be reached at
414-0903.
The community support
for Jean Claude has been
strong ever since this traves-
ty in justice began and Jean
Claude and Rebecca would
love to meet and talk to those
that have been praying for
him throughout this.
I am also thankful to all
those that have come up to
me in parking lots that ask
me to send their prayers and
best wishes on to Jean


Claude. Also, a special thank
you to those who have donat-
ed to the Jean Claude Meus
account at Wauchula State
Bank.
Please feel free to call me
with questions or e-mail me

Frank 'E should be
commended for
helping kids
Editor:
I wish to commend (staff
writer) Christopher Tuffley
for his excellent article:
"Musician creates happy
campers," (July 16, News-
Sun).
Musician Frank 'E should
also be commended for
donating his tips for two
months to send kids to sum-
mer camp this summer, a
most worthy cause.
I have been at many clubs
where Frank 'E performs and
I have observed his many
excellent human qualities. He
is an outgoing person, who
always greets you with a
smile. He walks the extra
mile for his many friends and
patrons that enjoy his music.
He treats everyone equally.
Often, he will try to play
your favorite requested song.
If you happen to play a musi-
cal instrument or sing, many
times Frank 'E will invite
you to perform on the stage.
It was refreshing to see the
News-Sun pay tribute to an
outstanding musician and a
classy guy.

Making autistic child not welcome at church a hypocrisy


Readers of this column may recall I
have a friend in Georgia that I chat with
frequently online. We also swap e-mails
and occasionally call up if we are hav-
ing a particularly bad day and need to
talk to someone as crazy as we are. If
our husbands question the phone calls
we explain to them it's cheaper than
therapy.
Tina has a 9-year-old son, Matthew.
Matt-man, as I call him, is autistic. He
is cute and smart but communicating
with him is not always easy. I base this
on one time I called Tina's home and
got a babysitter. He asked if I'd like tQ
talk to Matthew. I said yes.
My conversation with Matt-man start-
ed out well enough, even though 98 per-
cent of his responses consisted of one
--word: "OK." Then I decided to ask
Matthew to hand the phone to the
babysitter so I could leave Tina a mes-
sage.
Matthew's response? "OK." But the
phone stayed in his hand. If I hadn't
given up and ended the call, we might
still be talking, Matthew telling me,
"OK."
Obviously if you have communication
problems you might not always act right
in public places. Tina and her husband
have had to be creative at times going to
church. Sometimes Frank has to take
Matthew out of the auditorium because
the child doesn't understand having to

be quiet during worship.
Let me point out to those of you
shaking your heads that this isn't a
question of a child who knows better
and is defiant. Matthew has trouble
comprehending stuff like this. He does-
n't understand what's going on around
him.
At least the church Tina and Frank
attend understand and sympathize to a
certain extent. Moreover, Tina and
Frank try to minimize Matthew's disrup-
tions, removing him from services when
he becomes too noisy.
This is not the situation in Bertha,
Minn., where a judge recently upheld a
Catholic church's restraining order bar-
ring a family from attending Mass
because of their autistic 13-year-old son.
Adam Rice is 225 pounds and 6 feet,
2 inches tall. The church of St. Joseph
has said that the child is a physical
threat to others and his conduct is dis-
ruptive. They say he spit on people and
urinated in church. They are afraid that
he will knock down someone and injure
them.
Adam's mother, Carol, claims that her
family has attended the church since
1996. She was shocked that the church
issued a restraining order against them.


While she doesn't deny that Adam can
be disruptive, she denies he's a danger
to others. According to her, people are
expecting her to discipline Adam out of
his autism, which of course isn't going
to happen.
The church and the Rices have tried
to find a compromise, but the family
turned down all alternatives, which
included having Mass piped into a room
via closed-circuit television or being
conducted privately in their home.
At the end of one article I read online
while preparing this column there were
more than 150 comments about the case,
ranging from well thought out to out-
right stupid. The most stupid one came
from someone who claimed, "I pay
good money for my seat at church. I do
not ... extra noise coming from the back
row." If thiat isnVcV!lu~elessness, I don't
know what is. ''"- '
I can't find any winners in this case.
Of course the mom wants as normal a
life for her son as possible. And the
church has an obligation not only to her
family, but to everyone else who
attends.
But a place that claims to teach what
Jesus taught forbidding someone to
come? Why does that seem like a con-
tradiction in terms?

BUDGET
Continued from 1A
of the cost increases could be or should passed
to the taxpayers, but should be absorbed by the
city through budget cuts and better planning.
Except where required by professional stan-
dards or law, the city eliminated all training,
travel and per diem funding.
From Amendment 1 to decreased spending,
the city is feeling the same financial crunch as
Highlands County, its other cities and the rest
of the state.
Wright described his optimism as a requisite
to being a farmer.
Nonetheless, he said every indication from
economists is that final tax revenue numbers
in all their forms are expected to be lower than
what they were working with Saturday.
"I think we need to be thinking more dra-
matic ,'-e said as the council shaved a few
thousand' dollars here, or $500 there. "I don't,
think anything I've seen is dramatic enough."
Hall agreed.
"We need to talk about cutting jobs," he
said.
Wright agreed, saying he's willing to elimi-
nate positions and that he will not vote for any
millage increase.
"The voters have spoken," Wright said.
Schuler ended the layoff discussion by
assuring them City Manager Sarah Adelt's
proposed budget had significant cuts in.areas
yet to be discussed.
"This year, we bought whatever wanted,"
Schuler said, reminding department heads she
was verifying they reduced expenses instead
of carrying over current expenses.
Adeltfproposed to review cell phone usage,
suggesting only department heads have plans
with airtime minutes. All others, she said,
would be lirnited'to Nextel's two-way radios.:
In addition, she proposed to implement a
semi-monthly vehicle inspection process to
track mileage and wear and tear.
A tool inventory program may be in the
works, based onr the discussion.
"I sign so many checks every month for so
many tools," Schuler said, explaining they're
often the same tools.
Somebody asked if there's an inventory and
Wright said there wasn't, or the tools wouldn't
have to be re-purchased as much.
"These tools," Hinson asked, holding up his
Stirofoam coffee cup. "Are they like this
thrit' awaN cup? Or, are we just losing them?"
Avdn Park Police Chief Matt Doughney and
Cmdr. Michael Rowan only spent about 30
minutes discussing their budget with council.
Most of their legwork had been accom-

budget hearing in Avon Park.

polished earlier in the year, when the depart-
ment's vehicle take-home policy became an
issue.
Doughney pointed out that his budget was
reduced 23 percent.
Schuler reminded him the bulk of that
reduction was the transfer of their dispatchers
to Highlands County Sheriff's Office.
With four law enforcement openings, the
City is reserving two of the positions for
minorities.
The council discussed eliminating the
D.A.R.E. officer, which falls under the School
Resource Officer program, as 50-50 shared
cost with the School Board of Highlands
County.
Concerned that the officers work about nine
months a year and take their vacation during
the summer, the council wondered aloud if
they could reduce their share of the cost.
"So, we're paying 50 percent for an officer
we don't use?". Gray asked.
Rowan explained that, in his opinion,
D.A.RE. is a valuable program and the
resource officers serve as role models for
impressionable minds.
"You can't just walk in and do the D.A.R.E.
program," Doughney said, when somebody
suggested other officers be cross trained.
The budget 'hearing continued after lunch,
provided by Hall's Papa Johns pizza delivery.


e Noethlich officially e ue c
.. l IW ,the reins the transition lic's plate.,
dties from Hoffman to Rut rthhe ibia --t challenge


Continued from 1A
bimonthly city council meet-
ings, and performing a vari-
ety of tasks each and every
day. And because Noethlich's
assistant position was a new
one for the city, it was an
adjustment for everyone.'
"It was kind of a learning
process for everybody in a
way because we didn't have
that position to begin with,"
Noethlich said.
When Noethlich first start-
ed with the city, his goal.
wasn't toyascend to the city's
top job. But Noethlich's
move to an administrative,
capacity wasn't a complete
surprise.'He had previously
worked in the hotel business
in Tampa, and there he per-
formed a variety of tasks that
enabled him to hone his cus-
tomer service and administra-
tive skills.
As an administrator,
Noethlich often finds himself
drawing from that customer
service experience, especially
now .that his customer base is
an entire city.
"I've been able to use
those customer service skills
acquired over time when
dealing with.the clientele
here, which are the (city's)
other employees and the pub-
lic," Noethlich said. "I think
those skills have helped put
me where I am now."


First few days haven't
been overwhelming
Because Noethlich had
already assumed some of
Hoffman's old responsibili-
ties before his official start
date, the transition has not
been overwhelming, he said.
"The first few days have
kind of been very similar to
my functions before, but it's
been a fair amount busier,"
he said, jokingly adding that
part of the reason for the
increased activity was the
fact that Hoffman had been
on vacation.
Hoffman is serving as a
consultant with the city until
September to help with the
transition and to assist in the
hiring of a new assistant
administrator. And even


Noethlich had already begun. '
Noethlich's first official
day as city administrator was
capped off with a regular city
council meeting, which.
Noethlich said wasn't as dif-
ficult as it might seem.
"I actually felt pretty com-
fortable, amazingly enough,"
Noethlich said. "I feel I've
adjusted pretty well to the
duties to the position."
Now that he's firmly
ensconced iri the main job,
Noethlich has several impor-
tant tasks in front of him, the
most immediate of which is
the .2008-09 budget.
Implementation of a non-ad
valorem fire assessment has
been a primary topic of the'
city council over the past few
months, and that process will
only get busier as the budget
process moves forward.
Harder Hall will also
remain on Noethlich's agen-
da. There has been plenty of
recent interest in the property
over the past few weeks,
including a two-day visit by
an investment firm last week.
But those discussions will be


facing the city in the future
will be growth, Noethlich
said, an issue that affects just
about everything the city
government does.
"Growth is what compli-
cates this type of position,"
Noethlich said. "The large
challenges will be as a result
of growth or lack thereof.
Obviously, most people don't
think there will be a lack of
growth in Florida, but I think
the biggest challenges of this
job will be due to population
growth."
Noethlich's day-to-day
duties in his new position are
somewhat similar to his last
job, with the major difference
being that the responsibility
of the city's operation lies
completely in his hands.
Noethlich's prior work expe-
rience and Hoffman's assis-
tance have made the process
slightly easier, but as
Noethlich readily admits, the
learning process never really
ends.
"This is not a job you learn
or adjust to overnight,"
Noethlich said.

dropped the subject."
Andrews was fired from his
post as director of the cham-
ber April 22 shortly after win-
ning election to the Sebring
City Council. The board of
directors claimed gross negli-
gence was the main reason.
A major motivation for the
change in the scholarship pro-
gram was that the money will
be matched by the state.
Money donated by the com-
munity is already matched by
Wildstein, so this would
effectively quadruple the ini-
tial amount donated by local
sources.
Involving the government
didn't change the scholarship
rules, and the change was
approved by Wildstein.
"When it came up as an
option this year I was all for
it," he said.
Stephens said the conversa-
tions he had with Andrews
were more exploratory in
nature, but added that he was-
n't sure why Andrews didn't

Chamber director.
"The chamber has a very
small staff," Stephens said.
"The move benefits the cham-
ber. It just makes a lot of
sense."
The Foundation has 120
separate endowments audited
by the state and the SFCC
business office. The
Chamber's scholarship fund
is one of those 120.
Currently, 16 scholarship
winners from previous years
are drawing money from the
account. The students submit
paperwork as they pay tuition.
Pallone said with the move
the Chamber could focus
more on fundraising rather
than bookkeeping.
"SFCC has the tools and
resources to make sure the
money is controlled proper-
ly," she said. "SFCC has ...
the people that can handle
that."
When asked if money was
mishandled or missing from
the account, Stephens indicat-
ed he didn't think so.
"We have sufficient funds,"
he answered.
A fundraising luncheon on


Friday, the first of the
Foundation-controlled era,
raised $9,771, according to
late afternoon figures provid-
ed by Pallone. The figure is
before any matching by
Wildstein or the state.
Wildstein said he would
like to see $25,000 raised,
totaling $100,000 when
matched by himself and the
state.
"We still have four or five
months," said Stephens. "We
really want to get $100,000
back in that fund."
Pallone said donations are
accepted at the Chamber
office, 227 U.S. 27 N. The
Chamber can be reached at
385-8448.
The Chamber-run scholar-
ship program has been active
since 1992.
Two $4,000 scholarships
were awarded at Friday's
luncheon from a pool of 10
high-achieving high school
graduates.
Winners Shea Young and
Chelsea Johnsoh thanked
their teachers for their help
and support during their high
school years.

FORUM
Continued from 1A
Republicans and others,"
Voters League Third Vice
President Susan Foster said.
But, excepting unfamiliar
faces, regularly attending
members tend to know each
others' politics.
That said, it's policy to
never ask about party affilia-
tion because the league, for-
merly known as Ivory Club, is
non-partisan, explained Foster.
' "To be honest, we tend to
lean toward a conservative
attitude," she said.
The chief vote counter after
each of the organization's
meeting they attempt to
gauge an audience's position
9r. concerns on a given issue
t- Foster presented the results
of the straw ballot.
: In the race for top cop,
Republican challenger Ron
Grimming unseated Sheriff
susan Benton, 56 percent to
31 percent.
Avon Park Police
Department Cmdr. Michael J.
Rowan received four percent.
' For clerk of courts, from
which L.E. "Luke" Brooker is
retiring, Compliance and
Internal Audit Director Mary
Wilson received 52 percent of
the vote and Senior Director of
Court Services Bob Germaine
garnered 43 percent.
, Both are employed by
Brooker.
For Commissioner Andrew
Jackson's District 3 seat, there


are Democrat and Republican
primaries.
Democrats Jeri Canale and
Bruce Borkosky are facing off
and former Sebring council-
man Jeff Carlson is challeng-
ing Republican incumbent
Jackson.
In what apparently was a
winner-takes-all straw vote,
Carlson handily won with 54
percent.
Jackson received 20 per-
cent, and the Democrats each
received 10 percent.
Commissioner C. Guy
Maxcy wasn't present for the
forum, but that didn't stop him
from receiving 20 percent of
possible votes.
His opponent, Zane
Thomas, received 66 percent
and is the only candidate in
any of the partisan races not
affiliated with a party.
"New perspective, fresh
ideas and positive leadership,"
Thomas said during his two-
minute opening statement,
explaining what he'll bring to
the county commission board-
room table.
A retired Navy officer,
Thomas wants to participate in
the governmental process he
defended and for which others
died.
Written questions were col-
lected from the audience and
presented by forum emcee
,Barry Foster, WWTK talk
show host (730 on the AM
dial) and political activist.
The candidates were intro-
duced by race and party, then
questioned as a group if run-


ning for the same or similar
office.
In addition to Maxcy,
Rowan was not present.
Barry Foster said Rowan
was taking a final exam at
South Florida Community
College.
The audience wanted to
know: What is the most impor-
tant quality of an administra-
tor? How do you feel about
cross training as a cost-savings
measure? Why hasn't the
clerk's office been audited and
who would do it?
Regarding propositions that
require the expenditure of
funds, what is your first reac-
tion: Find a reason to make it
happen or find a reason to not
make it happen?
What would you do about
illegal aliens? What are your
thoughts on impact fees? Are
there any programs you would
discontinue?
Who checks the credentials
of those wanting to develop
land in the county?
What can the county com-
mission do about establishing
a 50 mph speed limit on US 27
and limiting tractor trailers to
the far-right two lanes?
What are your thoughts on
cutting administrative posi-
tions to field more road
deputies? What about the law
enforcement building?
How do you plan to cover
(law enforcement) the growth
of Highlands County?
The answers the candidates
gave to those questions can be
found at www.newssun.com.

PRECO Foundation's Operation

Round Up gives $20K to aid

Caring People Ministries


Special to the News-Sun
WAUCHULA Drug
addiction is on the rise in this
country, and continues to
spawn a host of problems
such as crime, ruptured fami-
ly relationships and suicide,
to name just a few.
To counter this culture of
desperation, Caring People
Ministries in Bowling Green
offers a ray of hope to indi-
viduals caught in the grasp of
substance abuse.
CPM, operating a drug
rehabilitation program since
1993, is a women-only facili-
ty, treating individuals as a
whole by getting them off
drugs, while attempting to
reunite them with their fami-
lies, and teaching them job
skills.
Operation Round Up, the
charitable arm of Peace River
Electric Cooperative, recent-
ly provided a grant of
$20,000 to CPM to offset
food and utilities costs, and
to aid them in an expansion


project which will house
more women.
"Individuals and organiza-
tions, like PRECO, and their
commitment and support is
what keeps our doors open"
shares Johnny Parker, chief
executive officer of Caring
People.
' "We value and appreciate
their help."
Operation Round Up is a
program made possible by
the generosity and compas-
sion of PRECO members.
Funds are raised for local
worthy individuals and chari-
table organizations by
"rounding up" members'
monthly energy bills to the
next dollar.
Charitable grants are con-
sidered in the areas of food,
shelter, clothing, medical,
education and the environ-
ment.
Operation Round Up funds
are available to individuals
and organizations residing in
one of the 10 counties that

about what Finance

pen when
someone's debt spirals out of
control and they don't know
where to turn next.
Many people spend far
beyond their means and don't
save adequately for tomor-
row's needs or emergencies.
Some are only one mishap
away from disaster. Suppose
you lost your job, your mort-
gage readjusted at a much
higher rate or you incurred a
catastrophic medical bill:
What would you do?
Before you find yourself
trapped in a cycle of debt col-

cy here are a few warning
signals and steps you can take
to right the ship:
Know what you owe. Some
folks have no idea how much
they spend each month nor
how that compares to money
coming in. Before they know
it, they're struggling to make
minimum payments and may
even miss a few payment
deadlines, which can lead to
costly late fees and elevated
interest rates.
If you don't already have a
budget, create one right away.

Realtor battling breas
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING On June 21 and 22, Exit Realty
All Stars held a huge garage sale, bake sale, and
car wash at the Sebring office. The sale was held
for Kim Conley, a realtor employed at Exit
Realty who is currently battling breast cancer.
With medical bills pilling up, the employees at
Exit Realty decided they needed to do something
to help raise some cash for Conley. All proceeds
from the sales went to Conley and her husband
Mike, to help their family out during this difficult
time.
With proceeds from the garage sale, bake sale,
car wash, and cash donations, $1604.30 was
raised for Conley. Special thanks go out to every-
one who helped: Denice and Bill Ratterree,
James Conley, Jennifer Tomblin, Glenn Powers,
Joe Kallister, Nora Rivera, Kiara Mora, Brandon
Conley, Ronald Yates, Lucy Saldarini, Maribel
Ayala, Liz Marabel, Daniel Barber, Joe and Teri
Hallimen, Jeri Canale, Steve Marabel, Ashley
Hamlin, Theresa and Angela Hager, Dustin
Ridenour, John and Dale Stewart, Carol Edwards,
Candi McDonald, Rhonda McCullough, Paula
Saldarini, Toni Neal and Jeff Ludwig.

FINANCE
Continued from 11A
Visa Inc.'s free personal financial management
site, Practical Money Skills for Life, features
an easy-to-use, downloadable tool called My
Budget Planner that can help you track income
and expenses and make spending adjustments
where necessary (www.practicalmoneyskills.
com/mybudget).
Don't hide from problems. As soon as you
realize you're having difficulty paying bills,
proactively call your creditors. Don't wait for
them to contact you and certainly don't ignore
their calls or correspondence. It's far better to
work out a payment solution together than to
let your options expire.
For example, many credit card companies
will lower interest rates or work out repayment
schedules for stable customers but you have
to ask first. And mortgage lenders today are
much more open to renegotiating loan terms if
it means keeping you as a paying customer
versus foreclosing (which is far more costly
and inconvenient for them).
Get help. If you feel trapped, resources are
available. Legitimate credit counseling agen-
cies can teach you responsible money manage-
ment skills and, in extreme cases, help negoti-
ate repayment plans with your creditors, often
securing lowered interest rates and waived late
fees. But use the utmost caution when choos-
ing an agency: unfortunately. many unscrupu-
lous firms prey on indebted people at times


when they're most vulnerable.
If you don't have a recommendation from a
trusted acquaintance, look for members of the
National Foundation for Credit Counseling
(www.nfcc.org). The Federal Trade
Commission provides a guide for choosing a
credit counselor, including questions to ask
them (www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/ credit/fis-
cal.shtm).
Seek agencies that:
*Have been in business at least five to 10
years and have no unresolved consumer com-
plaints with the Better Business Bureau
(www.bbb.org).
Charge reasonable fees that are spelled
out in writing.
Will waive or reduce fees for the finan-
cially destitute.
Offer personalized advice tailored to your
situation.
Don't pay their employees on commission
(potential conflict of interest).
Don't automatically steer you into a debt
management plan (DMP) many people don't
need a DMP unless their situation is truly dire.
Don't make outlandish promises for
example, no firm can erase negative but true
- information from your credit report.
Remember, you didn't get into this fix
overnight; it may take time to get back on
your feet.

Jason Aldcrman directs Visa's financial education
programs.

Home fires affect a record



number of Highlands families


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Fires kill more
Americans and affect more
households each year than all
natural disasters combined.
Over the last 12 months, the
people of Highlands County
have found this to be true.
In the last 12 months, the
local American Red Cross
office in Highlands County
has seen 37 families affected
by home fires.
The number of families
affected by fire in Highlands
County has more than dou-
bled this service year over the
previous year total of 15 fam-
ilies.


Highlands Red Cross vol-
unteers have helped another
two families since the service
year began on July 1.
To date, since July 2007,
the two counties in the local
chapter have helped a com-
bined total of more than 250
families affected by local dis-
asters, mostly home fires.
Home fires are the most
common local disaster, and
the Red Cross will always be
there to help. Committed,
compassionate volunteers will
respond at all hours, even in
the middle of the night to help
families, no matter the size of
the fire or the family. Still, we


would prefer people not expe-
rience the pain of home fires.
Practice fire prevention.
Check and maintain smoke
alarms. Keep working fire
extinguishers in your home
and learn how to use them.
Develop and practice a home
fire escape plan, so every
family member can escape
quickly and safely.
Do what you can to help
prevent local home fires, the
most common local disaster,
and continue to support the
local American Red Cross by
donating time, skills, or funds
to the American Red Cross.
Call 386-4440.

Red Cross calls for volunteers


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Can you
turn compassion into
action, and help provide
much needed skills and
information to people to
prepare them for disasters
and emergencies in the
future?
The Highlands Red
Cross will have a new vol-
unteer information meeting
at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8,
at the local office, 106
Medical Center Ave.,
Sebring. Highlands County
has nearly 100,000 people,
served by one paid Red
Cross employee and a lot
of volunteers.
"While we are always
looking for a donation of
monetary assistance, we
are also increasingly look-
ing for donations of time
and talent," said Glenn
Fowler, Red Cross volun-
teer and service delivery
assistant for the Highlands
County area.
The Highlands Red


Cross has responded dou-
ble the previous year's
local disaster calls.
To do all of this, the
local Red Cross needs you
to give of your talents in
one or more of several dif-
ferent ways to help
improve your local Red
Cross.
Several types of Red
Cross volunteers help the
Highlands County commu-
nity every day by doing
community outreach, edu-
cating families on prepar-
ing for disaster, training
people in life-saving skills,
organizing fundraising and
other special events, work-
ing with other local com-
munity organizations and
agencies, and organizing
the daily operations of the
Highlands County office.
The Red Cross runs on
volunteers.

Scam conti
By MARY MARGARET STAIK
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Joseph A.
Dionne, director of Highlands
County Veteran Services
Office, reminds veterans or
the surviving dependents
receiving compensation from
the Veterans Administration
to be mindful of their finan-
cial accounts.
Phishing continues to be a
problem, with veterans target-
ed for information via the
telephone or e-mails that
could relocate funds and/or
destroy credit. This type of
identity-theft scam has target-
ed local veterans..
The current scam involves
a person calling a veteran,
identifying the caller as a rep-
resentative of the VA. They
111 the veteran that the com-
ensation case is being
- reviewed and the VA needs
additional information,
threatening that until paper-
work is completed, the com-
pensation funds may be sus-
pended. The questions asked
by the caller are those needed
to secure access to the
accounts in which the funds
are being sent by the VA.
Dionne reminds the local
veterans and the surviving
dependents that the regional
office for the Bay Pines net-
work is closed after 4:30
p.m., and any callers report-
edly from the VA after that

Special to the News-Sun
The Army established the
"U.S. Army Wounded Warrior
Program" in 2005.
Medical technology has
advanced to the point where
soldiers injured today on the
battlefield are much more
likely to survive than those
injured in previous wars.
Soldiers enrolled in the U.S.
Army Wounded Warrior
Program are also more often
able to continue service to


their nation in the Army.
The U.S. Army Wounded
Warrior Program is designed
to provide severely wounded
soldiers and their families
with a system of advocacy
and follow-up with personal
support to assist them as they
return to duty, or to civilian
life.
The U.S. Army Wounded
Warrior Program is designed
to take care of severely
wounded soldiers and -their


families, never leaving a fall-
en comrade, truly supporting
the Warrior Ethos that these
soldiers have embodied in
their service to our nation.
Recovery is not limited to
physical needs, but includes
emotional, spiritual, financial
and occupational needs as
well.

the Wounded Warrior
Program can be obtained by

probably not from the VA, but
rather somebody "phishing"
for information. He suggests
telling the caller they "do not .
understand, and please con-
tact the Veteran Services
Office the next day, when the
veteran can be with his coun-
selor for an explanation of the
call."
Please note the time and
date of the call, and ask for
the name of the caller.
Assume after hours calls are
not in your best interest. If
you have caller ID, jot down
the number of the caller.
Further, contact your bank-
ing institution and alert them
to the possibility of a "phish-
ing" scam on the veteran's
account. This alert will flag
the accounr and should not
allow any unauthorizedl'uaeof

It is difficult to determine
how many veterans or their
surviving family members
have been targeted by such a
scam. As unfortunate as it is,
surviving spouses of veterans
are also at risk of having their
financial accounts accessed
,,by,,unauthorized users.
"We know that if it hap-
pened to one veteran, it is
probably going to. happen to
others, and we need -to be
proactive in alerting the area
veterans," Dionne said.

WASHINGTON The Department of
Veterans Affairs announced. recently that on-

applications for disability compensation, pen-
sion, education, and vocational: rehabilitation

Effective immediately, VA will now process

or dependents directly and
usually contact the veteran

for the VA to contact the vet-

Veterans and dependents
are reminded of the impor-

Department of Veterans Affairs
WASHINGTON The 28th.
National Veterans Wheelchair
Games, scheduled to take
place July 25-29 in Omaha,
Neb., will attract more than
500 veterans with disabilities.
It has become the largest
annual wheelchair sports
competition in the world.
Veterans from conflicts in
Afghanistan and Iraq will
again join their fellow veter-
ans in 17 competitive events.
"We are proud to present
this outstanding rehabilitation
event, a therapeutic extension
of the superior heath care vet-
erans receive in our medical
centers each day," said Dr.
James B. Peake, Secretary of
Veterans Affairs.
"Rehabilitation is crucial to
living a full life following an
injury.. I-applaud all of the
veterans-participating as they
strive to achieve their goals
during this week of athletic
competition."
The National Veterans
Wheelchair Games, co-pre-
sented by the Department of
Veterans Affairs and
Paralyzed Veterans of
America, are open to all U.S.
military veterans who use
wheelchairs for sports compe-
tition due 'to spinal cord
injuries, certain neurological
conditions, amputations or
other mobility impairments.
The VA Nebraska-Western
Iowa Health Care System in
Omaha and the Paralyzed
Veterans Great Plains Chapter
are the local hosts for the
2008 Games. Veterans com-
peting in the National
Veterans Wheelchair Games
come from nearly every state,
as well as Puerto Rico and
Great Britain.
"Like serving our nation,
the National Veterans


Wheelchair Games are not power soccer. An exhibition


really about the medals.
Instead, they're a mix of
camaraderie, competition and
courage. And they're rehabil-
itation at its best for our para-
lyzed veterans," said Randy
L. Pleva Sr., National
President of the Paralyzed
Veterans of America. "If you
are in the Omaha area, please
join us this July. You'll be
inspired."
At the Games, veterans will
compete in swimming, bas-
ketball, track, weight lifting,
softball, air guns, quad rugby,
nine-ball, field events, bowl-
ing, table tennis, archery,
handcycling, wheelchair
slalom, trapshooting, a motor-
ized wheelchair relay and


event in sled hockey will also
take place this year. For the
second year, several stand-up
events will be held for ath-
letes with amputations who
choose to compete using pros-
thetic devices instead of com-
peting in their wheelchairs.
The 28th National Veterans
Wheelchair Games begin July;
25 with a kick-off wheelchair
basketball demonstration at"
the Qwest Center Omaha, afid
the 2008 Disabled Sports,
Recreation and Fitness Expo..
Kids Day at the Games will
take place July 27 at North-i
west High School, where'
local children with disabili-
ties will meet the athletes and
learn about wheelchair sports.,

Injured fawn faces long road to


recovery at Arnold's Rehab Center


Special to the News-Sun
OKEECHOBEE A four-
wheeler driver was happily
tooling through an
Okeechobee hammock when
he felt a sickening bump
under his wheels and he
stopped to investigate.
To his horror, he'd acciden-
tally run over a week-old
fawn hiding in the tall grass.
He immediately called
Arnold's Wildlife
Rehabilitation Center.
"This is one of those espe-
cially heartbreaking animal
emergency calls," said Sue
Arnold, owner and curator of
the center. "He asked if there
was anything we could do to
help the baby deer. I told him
to bring it in"
The distraught driver
arrived with the tiny fawn,
now nicknamed Rudy. The
fawn was in shock, its front
legs were broken, and it suf-
fered other injuries. "It was
touch and go at first," Arnold
said. "After I examined and
stabilized the fawn with emer-
gency care, I took it to a local
vet to set its legs and address
its other more critical
injuries."
Now an estimated six
weeks old, Rudy is still pretty
much confined to the center's
animal hospital to keep his
casts dry and himself from

calls.'

further injury while he recov-
ers. "We let him out for a
while each day when he can
be supervised," Arnold said.
"We have to be careful he
doesn't aggravate his heal-
ing."
Most fawns brought to the
wildlife center are orphaned
when their mothers are killed
on the highway or other cir-
cumstance. The fawns are
cared for until their spotted
coat disappears.
At that point, the center
sends them to a white-tail
deer preserve, where they
don't interact with humans.
After a period at the preserve,
they can be released back into
their natural habitat to fully
live their lives as nature
intended.
Rudy, however, is going to
require much longer-term
care, a special diet and -


when his casts are finally
removed extensive physical
therapy. "For one thing, he'll
need to learn how and be able
to bend his front legs," Arnold
said. "He's going to be here
for a long time. We won't
release him until we know
he's able to survive well on
his own."
Several days ago, Rudy
went back to the vet for a
checkup. One of his legs is
not yet healing. "He goes
back again in two weeks,"
Arnold said.
"He may need to have his
leg pinned. This is going to be
a more extended long-term
recovery than we originally
anticipated."
Arnold admits she doesn't
know a thing about four-
wheeling, though she suggests
those who enjoy the sport try
to stick with designated paths
or cut areas to avoid acciden-
tal injury to wildlife. "A lot of
critters live in the hammocks
and tall grasses," she said.
"Not just fawns, but also
birds and their nests, rabbits,
the endangered gopher tor-
toise and other native
species."
Arnold's Wildlife
Rehabilitation Center in
Okeechobee is a 501 (C) (3)

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop


Labored or

free breathing
I was reading a book
while in the waiting room
of a doctor's office and
not paying too much
attention to the comings
and goings of the office.
Until...
I was suddenly aware of
a person who entered the
room. He didn't pass in
front of me or bump into
me.
Rather, short gasps fol-
lowed by deliberate,
labored intakes of air
alerted me to his presence.
He sounded like he had
just run a marathon and
was desperately trying to
catch his breath.
My heart went out to
him.
It seems whenever I
come across someone with
labored breathing, I find
myself wanting to take in
extra air for them. My
own breathing becomes a
more conscious thing as I
begin to labor with them.
All too often, \%e take
our lungs and breathing
capacity for granted. It is
- such an unconscious act
that takes place every
moment of every day
whether waking or sleep-
ing.'
Being married to an
asthmatic has made me all
the'more conscious of
how lifestyle changes can
aid breathing.
There are many things
we can do like proper
nutrition, supplementa-
tion, exercise and air
purification. And there
are many other things we
shouldn't do like smoking
or inhaling second-hand
smoke, fumes, mold, etc.
It makes me think of
prayer.
Is prayer as second
nature to us as breathing?
Or has it become a
labored exercise that
comes in short gasps or
from over-exertion?
In 1 Thessalonians 5:
17, NKJV, it reminds us to
"pray without ceasing."
Such a prayer life is
like the blood that flows
continually from our
hearts and the breath in
our lungs that ceaselessly
provides us life.
That is what prayer is to
be life-giving breath.
We don't need to exer-
cise a prayer-life though
it isn't wrong to form
good habits in doing so.
But, rather, prayer should
be life itself.
Does that mean we con-
tinually get on our knees,
or go to a quiet place
throughout the day? Both
of those exercises are
good and have their place.
But praying without ceas-
ing is more an attitude of
the heart than a posture or
place.
Think about it as con-
tinual dialog with the One
who is our life. In
Colossians 1:17 we are
told that in Jesus all things
hold together. So if we are
held together by him and
he is our life ... prayer
connects us and keeps us
attached to that life within
us.
So breathe freely with
ceaseless prayer, Selah

Birds And Other
Wild Things
Hank and Ruth Kowalski

Cattle Egret a

common sight

in our area

Welcome to our roost!
From time to time, folks will
ask us about a bird they see
in town, hunting for a meal
in shrubbery and on the
ground, usually in small
groups. The description given
points to the Cattle Egret.
This is a bird about 20 inches
tall, has a pinkish-brown
wash about the neck and
shoulders, and legs and bill
are yellow. The bird is an
introduced species, not native
to the New World.
Quoting Time magazine,
"This egrets' migration to the
Western Hemisphere is one
of today's most fascinating
ornithological puzzles. Never
had a land bird migrated
3,000 miles across the ocean
from Africa and successfully
settled on the other side."
Quoting from Ornithology
of the Mosquitos, by
Longstreet (1956) "The
Cattle Egret is a native of
southern Europe, Africa and
southern Asia. It was first
discovered in the New World
on May 27, 1937, in British
Guiana. The second South
American record was in
Venezuela, Jan. 27, 1943 ...
The first reported appearance
in North'America was at
Wayland, Mass. on April 23,
1952, bat it developed later
that some were included in a
mo% ie af herons among cattle
near Lake Okeechobee,
March 12, 1952."
Th1 Cattle Egret has flour-
ished surprisingly well in its
new environment. Today,
Flonda's Cattle Egret popula-
tion exceeds 15,000 and the
sociable birds have been
ipott in every state along
'e Atlantic and the CGulf of
te ibk. Tfiis interesting bird
may be been amid any herd
of cattle, walking about to

feed on insects stirred by the
cattle feet and sometimes
standing on the back of cat-
tle.
The Cattle Egret (Bulbucus
ibis) breeds in a variety of
sites, usually near water, and
nests are usually near
colonies of other egrets. The
nest is a shallow structure of
varied material: twigs, sticks,
dead reeds; or other readily
available vegetation. Smaller
twigs are used for lining. The
male usually brings the mate-
rial, female forms the nest,
which takes three to six days.
The breeding season is vari-
able, beginning in late March
to mid-April. Usually four to
five non-glossy, very pale or -
whitish-blue eggs are laid
and both sexes share in the
incubation period of 21-25
days. The young are tended
by both parents and will fly
in about 40 days, possibly
becoming independent in
about 60 days.
Someone asked if they


were "good eatin'?" We don't
know, but perhaps some of
the readers may know. Now,
now don't tell us they taste
like Eagle!
According to the Archbold-
Audubon Lake Placid
Christmas Bird Count, the
five-year average sighting of
this interesting bird stands at
604, as observed during the
count period.
Until next time, we wish
you great birding sightings
and if you see an unusual
bird, let us know so that we
can share your excitement.
Get out and enjoy all of the
natural world you deserve
it!

Ruth and Hank Kowalski live in
Lake Placid and are members of
the Audubon Society. They are
graduates of the Dr. Reed
Bowman Bird Study Course
given at SFCC and have years of
experience peering through scopes
and binoculars, trying to identify
that certain bird! Contact them

Eight steps to reduce landscape water usage


Just bezt een you, me;,and
the garden post 50 percent
of water used by homeown-
ers is for landscape usage
and the biggest factor leading
to the decline of home lawns
and the waste of water is the
improper operation of auto-
matic sprinkler systems. So
if you would like to prevent
decline of your turfgrass and
use less water, then I have a
few easy practical sugges-
tions for your irrigation sys-
tem.
1. Run your irrigation sys-
tem twice a year to inspect
for leaks, proper head align-
ment, and blocked sprinkler
patterns.
2. Repair broken piping
and sprinklers to eliminate
leaks.
3. Adjust or reposition
sprinklers to eliminate over-
spray on drives, walks, build-
ings, and into other irrigation

beds. Mulch keeps the mois-
ture in the soil and prevents
evaporation.
8. Mow your grass at the
highest height required and
with a sharp blade. Higher
grass will encourage deeper
root zones and drought toler-
ant turf. The grass that has
been cut with a well sharp-
ened blade will prevent water
loss and diseases from enter-
ing the grass blade.
Follow these few simple
steps and you will have a
much happier lawn, a happier
bank account, and a much
happier back!

Five days of 4-H summer camp was a fun, green thing for 33 kids


It's a green
thing.
The week of
July 7-11 was a
very busy one for
about 33 kids
that participated
in the 4-H
Summer Camp.
News Ranging in ages
From The from 8-14, these
Watershed youths had lots
of fun while
Corine Burgess learning about
nature, crafts,
outdoor skills, dairies, history,
plants and team work.
April Butler, 4-H agent, came up
with the idea for the camp and said
that "It was a lot of work to put it
together, but it is important to have
wholesome activities for our
youth." The staff from Highlands
Soil and Water Conservation
District assisted April with planning
the event and by providing supervi-
sion, teachers and moral support.
It's good to see the different county
departments working so well
together on projects and we plan to
do more in the days to come.


The week started out with a trip
to Highlands Hammock State Park
where the kids had an opportunity
to go on a tram ride followed by a
ranger guided tour through the
cypress swamp. It was a wonderful
opportunity for the kids to see the
beauty of nature and learn about it
at the same time.
Tuesday was the time for them to
show off their talents. A fun-filled
day held at the Highlands County
Agri-Civic Center included building
bird boxes for screech owls, paint-
ing their own flower pots, making
stepping stones for their gardens
and putting together a scrapbook
page with a picture of the group. It
was amazing to see the kids work
and learn new skills and hone up on
the skills they already had. Each
child got to take their crafts home
and show them off to their parents.
Midweek brought on a competi-
tive edge for the kids. Bishop Park
was full of youths who would be
competing in a "Survivor
Challenge." The challenge included
dip netting, swimming, casting and
canoeing. Each group of kids was
given a lesson in each category and

mer day camp.


then the competition began. Four
teams competed for the prestige of
being first place. Each group did


very well and tried their hardest.
Not only was it a lot of fun, but it
taught the kids about the impor-
tance of working together toward a
common goal. They also know a lot
more about these outdoor skills and
there was plenty of laughter and
fun.
Thursday included a trip to Butler
Dairy, where the children bottle fed
calves and had hands-on learning of
the dairy operation. In addition,
they planted caladium bulbs in the
flower pots they painted and used
compost that was supplied by the
Butlers.
Rounded off with a fun-filled trip
to Cypress Gardens on Friday, the
camp was a hit.
As with any successful event, it
wouldn't have been possible with-
out the help of so many people.
Thanks to our Earth Team volun-
teers, who made all the kits for the
bird boxes and instructed the kids
on how to put them together.
Thanks to the Highlands County
Lakes Association for cooking the
burgers and hot dogs each day for
our lunches. Many thanks go out to
all of the camp sponsors: Butler

Much appreciation is extended to
all the folks who gave up their time
and came out to supervise, teach
and encourage the kids through out
the week. You are the reason that
the event was so successful.
It is our hope that the kids
walked away from this camp with a
better understanding of nature, more
confidence in themselves and oth-
ers, new friends and fond memories
that will last a life time.

Family squabbles need to be headed off by you, Leo


Sunday, July 20, 2008 5B


Aries (March 21-April 20) The hot
weather has put you in a mood, Aries.
You may want to spend some time at
home until you're in better spirits. Think
about hanging out with friends as well.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) Taurus,
financial concerns leave you feeling
nervous this week. It's better to pinch
some pennies for a while until you get
back on course. Capricorn lends a hand.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) Gemini,
a special friend from your past comes
back for a visit. It could lead to interest-
ing things. Keep your agenda open for
Wednesday when love is in your stars.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,
keep your patience with a friend on
Tuesday. This person is just feeling a lit-
tle stir-crazy and really doesn't mean the
things he or she is saying.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Family
squabbles can get out of hand unless you
keep the peace, Leo. Be the bigger per-
son, maintain order and lead by a com-
passionate example.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Virgo,


HOROSCOPEO


stop doing so much for others and pam-
per yourself a little bit this week. Go to a
spa, take a vacation, or just stay home
from work for a day.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Libra,
you've been feeling very anxious and it's
partially because you are experiencing
low self-esteem. You have to exert more
confidence in all that you do.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Scorpio,
a close friend really needs your help on
Thursday. Make sure your schedule is
open so that you can lend a hand. Put
work on hold for some quality time with
your mate.
Sagittarius (nov. 23-Dec. 21) Have
you been spending too much time at
work, Sagittarius? It could be because
you are avoiding a situation at home.
Face your problems and be honest with


yourself.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) It may
be time to consider a career change,
Capricorn. Think about what interests
you the most rather than just focusing in
on the financial factor.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) Your
confidence continues to rise, Aquarius. It
could be because of good news you've
been receiving at work. Consult with Leo

Get ready, get set, plant: Time to start thinking about your vegetable garden is now


As we celebrate summer, it
is also time to think ahead to
August and September. Those
are the months when veg-
etable gardens are planted in
South Florida. Whether you
are an experienced veggie
grower or are thinking about
raising your own crops for
the first time, now is the time
for choosing a place to grow
vegetables and getting it
ready to plant.
That's especially true if
you decide to use an excel-
lent method of garden prepa-
ration called Solarization.
Solarization is just a fancy
word for putting clear plastic
on your moist garden site and
letting the sun bake out all of
the weed seeds, bad bugs and
nematodes. It takes several
weeks, so choose your gar-
den spot and heat it up.
When you are ready to do it,
check our Web site or call or
come by the extension office.
We can help.
Choosing where to plant is
also important. A vegetable
garden needs at least six
hours of sun every day. Get
out your compass and site
your plot with the long side
pointing north-south. Make
sure you can get to it with a
source of water. And remem-
ber you can also locate
vegetables in your sunny
flower beds some, like
okra and eggplant, are really
beautiful.
A paper plan is a good
idea, using information about
spacing from seed packets.
Oh, and don't plant vegeta-
bles you hate to eat. This
year I plan to raise lots of
broccoli and not so many
green beans.
Another really important
aspect of vegetable gardening
is the soil. If you have a,
chance, it is a great idea to
add organic materials to our
sandy soil. This should be
done soon. You may not have
compost but you can pur-
chase both compost and
,manure %.here Nou buy plants
-" !and seeds. And start a com-
post pile now for next year.
See articles on our Web
site about composting. Many
experienced gardeners
believe it takes several years
to create really rich garden
soil, so be patient. In the
meantime you will probably
want to use commercial fer-
tilizer. The label will tell
you how to apply before,
during and after planting.
When planting time comes
August for many crops -
you are ready to purchase
seeds and plants. This is fun.
Buy disease-free bedding
plants and also look for dis-
ease resistant varieties. The
University of Florida has
information about what vari-
eties grow well in south
Florida so feel free to consult
us. We have lists. Plant seeds
according to the directions on
the packets and water the
way they tell you to. Planting
depth is important for
seedlings to thrive.
Here is a tomato tip:
Remove lower leaves on the


seedling's stem and plant the
stem also. This creates a
very healthy root system.
And speaking of disease,
in our climate fungus disease
is common. The other key
practice is to watch your
watering. And if need be,
fungicides are available to
help prevent some vegetable
diseases. Read the label and
treat accordingly.
Eventually you may have
to control weeds. Hoeing
when weeds are still small is


best; chemical herbicides are
not so good in a vegetable
garden. If you have solarized
your plot, your weed, nema-
tode and fungus problems
will be less.
Insects need to be managed
too, and the secret is to
"scout" your crops. That
means inspect your plants
carefully twice a week and


treat only affected plants. We
have another list of Florida
Friendly pest treatments that
are biological products.
If this sounds like a lot of
work just think about the
taste of vine-ripened toma-
toes. No vegetable that is
picked and then ripened in a
truck on the highway can
compare to the taste of the
:y;


one you pick fresh from your
garden.
And if you would like
more help, please consider
attending our series of work-
shops on growing your own
food.
The next one is Tuesday
and then again Aug. 5. It's a
series of free hands-on work-
shops to get you ready to
produce your own great pro-
duce.
If you don't have a lot of
space we can teach you how


to garden in containers. Call
(863) 763-6469 to register.
If you need additional
information on vegetable gar-
dening, e-mail us at okee-
chobee@ifas.ufl.edu or call
us at (863) 763-6469. In
Highlands County call 402-
6540 and in Glades County
call (863) 946-0244.

"Top Spin 3"
2K Sports; PlayStation 3, Xbox 360;
$49.99
ESRB Rating: Everyone (6+)
i** Score: 4 out of 5
BY SHAUN CONLIN
and CRAIG HUMPHREYS
f you're not a tennis fan, "Top
Spin 3" for PlayStation 3 and Xbox
360 might make you one. It's a true
sports simulation in that it's deep, de-
manding, exacting and all the more
rewarding for it.
The game features 40 pro players
such as Roger Federer and Maria
Sharapova, a few retirees like Boris
Becker and Monica Seles, and Rafael
Nadal, who is exclusively available on
the PS3 version.
Being of the high-def generation,
"Top Spin 3" does a magnificent job
of capturing players' likenesses with
digital representations of real ath-
letes that look, well, real and less (but
not completely) like those creepy,
soulless animated corpses with vacu-
ous eyes and wooden faces that usual-
ly pass for "realism." Players even
sweat realistically which is also a fa-
tigue indicator. Beyond mere aesthet-
ics, the individual swing types and

other nuanced mannerisms are su-
perbly attended to.
All the modes you'd expect in a so-
phisticated tennis simulation are also
resolutely present-- this is no snack-
sized "Wii Sports" Mii-whack game
- there is a Wii version of "Top Spin
3," but it's not in the same ballpark,
to mix metaphors (see review below).
Fleshed out with exhibition, tour-
nament and online multiplayer com-
ponents for singles or doubles play,
it's the career mode of "Top Spin 3"
that truly stands out. You can rocket
up to the pro levels if you know what
you're doing, but it's also gentle and
slow if you're a newbie: You create a
player, run all the tutorials and then
take him or her through the amateur-


to-pro paces. You need to dedicate a
significant amount of time wrapping
your head and hands around control
subtleties, but it's nice to find a game
that doesn't throw you to the wolves
from the get-go, expecting a high level
of skill just because you have a high
level of devotion to the sport.
Even if you've played and mastered
"Top Spin" or "Top Spin 2," be
warned that controls are drastically
different for "Top Spin 3." They're
more realistic now, but also more ex-
acting and frustrating if you're used
to earlier versions.
The old control scheme allowed
you to simply press the button corre-
sponding to the shot you wanted to
hit, for example, but now it's more
delicate than that, reliant on good
timing as releasing a button not
just pressing is what initiates the
forward swing of the racket. You also
can use the right thumbstick for
serves, which is likewise hard to get a
handle on, but thereafter crucial for
delivering a deceiving slice or top
spin.
Master all that and 2K Sports' "Top
Spin 3" is bang-on realistic; a terrific
tennis sim.


QUICK PICK


"Top Spin 3"
2K Sports; Wii; $49.99
ESRB Rating: Everyone (6+)
A* Score: 2 out of 5
Though based on the frightfully ex-
acting PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 ver-
sion of the game, "Top Spin 3" for Wii
has been noticeably
dumbed down for
play in Nintendo's
fun-for-all system -
all for the worse. ?L -
First off, the stan- ,
dard-definition
graphics of the Wii
don't do the game
any favors. Even by
Wii standards, the
game looks GameCube-ish; down-
right terrible by new-generation com-


prison. Likenesses of real pros are
merely vaguely similar.
Speaking of pro likenesses, there
are only 16 of them in the Wii ver-
sion, as opposed to 40 in the high-def
versions. It also lacks career and cre-
ate-a-player personalizations. It's just
really really basic, but costing the
same $50 as the PS3 and Xbox 360 ver-
sions for no good reason other than
blind market forces.
On the upside, marginal that it may
be, "Top Spin 3" for Wii is easier to
pick up and play and comes complete
with goofy multiplayer mini-games
that Wii owners have rightfully come
to expect and enjoy (presumably any-
way). It's not "Wii Sports" easy not
whack-and-guffaw goofball tennis-for-
dummies, but with similar Wii re-
mote control (Wii-mote) swing-like-a-


The ratings: *kA rf Excellent Very good


racket sensibilities. It just expects
you to position your player and time
your swing with much more exacti-
tude.
To position your player, however,
you use the thumbstick on an at-
tached nunchuk, which means you're
tethered to the Wii-mote.
That means your swing is either
hampered by the cord or you're
smacking yourself in the chin with it.
Good luck with that.
Worst of all, what "Top Spin 3" for
Wii doesn't strip down is the vicious-
ness of computer-controlled oppo-
nents. They'll play seemingly as hard
and fast and ornery as their PS3 and
Xbox 360 counterparts, despite the
fact that you're basically armed with
something akin to a Nerf racket at
Wimbledon. Just brutal.

cy. The Board will discuss/approve future

meeting called for such purpose, in the Board
Meeting Room, George Douglass Administra-
tion Building, 426 School Street, Sebring,

writing within 14 days of the date of this no-
tice, a rule development workshop will be no-
ticed in a local newspaper. The request must
be submitted to Wally Cox, Superintendent,
426 School Street, Sebring, FL 33870. The
purpose and effect of the proposed amend-
ment is to develop an Interlocal Agreement for
School Concurrency with requirements set
forth in recent Florida legislation. A summary
of the proposed rule or amendment is as fol-
lows: General purpose is to develop an inter-
local agreement as required by law with all lo-
cal government entities to implement provi-
sions of referenced laws to require new devel-
opment to pay the costs of providing adequate
school capacity to serve the requirements
generated by such new growth concurrently
with the need for such services. The specific
legal authority includes Sections 163.01,
1013.33, 163.31677(6)(h)1, 163.3177(6)(h)2,
163.3177(7), 163.3180(13),

1001.41, 1001.42, 1001.43, 1001.49 &
1001.51, Florida Statutes. The School District
believes that the proposed rule or amendment
will have no effect on small business. The
School District believes that the proposed rule
or amendment will not result in substantial in-
crease in costs or prices paid by consumers,
individual industries or state or local govern-
ment agencies, and will not result in signifi-
cant adverse effects on competition, employ-
ment, investment, productivity, innovation or
international trade and/or alternative ap-
proaches to the regulatory objective either do
not exist and/or are precluded by law. The
cost to the School District of promulgating the
proposed rule or amendment is estimated to
be $10,000, The estimated annual cost of im-
plementing and enforcing the proposed rule
or amendment is $15,000.
